Middle of the night MUNCHIES potato salad!

I have never tackled potato salad because I felt that it was something that should be left to the veterans. It just happens that I have reached an age in which mu mu’s seem pretty comfortable and that I need to have my own potato salad recipe. I love elements of German, Colombian and Potato salad, so, like Dyson and his vacuum cleaners, I set out to invent, The Perfect Potato Salad. I think that a great potato salad should make you want to get up at three in the morning, grab a fork and eat it straight out of the tupperware, perhaps with a few crumbled potato chips on [Read More...]

Don't Salt your Raw Shaved Zucchini Salad with Basil and Parmesan!

Anyone can shave zucchini and put it on a plate, but it will most likely become soggy because of one ingredient. I love salt more than anything and I always salt every step of the way, except for when I make shaved zucchini salad. Salt draws out the moisture in zucchini in the same way that it does in eggplant.

The Best Wedge Salad Maybe

A perfect wedge salad is simple. yet complex. Blah blah blah. No, really, it is very important to have the most delicious bleu cheese dressing ever, the freshest and most crisp Iceberg lettuce and the crispiest bacon bits. I borrowed this recipe from my mother-in-law, who got it from the Food Network online, but swapped out non-fat Greek yogurt for regular plain yogurt. I will say this a million times, there is virtually no difference in the taste of non-fat Greek yogurt and sour cream. There, I said it. I crave wedge salads, like I crave a burger. The perfect wedge, which I will teach you how to make here, [Read More...]
